Jakobi Meyers Looking To Continue Success

Friday, September 29, 5:06 PM

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Jakobi Meyers had another outstanding performance, posting seven receptions for 85 yards on 12 targets against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Meyers missed Week 2 with a concussion but returned in Week 3 and picked up right where he left off in Week 1. Through two games, Meyers is averaging eight receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets per game. Meyers will follow up his strong performance with a matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4. The Chargers defense has given up the most passing yards, third-most passing touchdowns, and third-highest yards per attempt. Despite being on a team with superstar Davante Adams, Meyers is commanding an over 30% target share on a team that will be in negative game scripts most weeks. Meyers is also a great fit for Garoppolo because he is an excellent receiver in the short to intermediate areas. Fantasy managers will want to watch Garoppolo's status for Sunday's game because the Raiders quarterback is still in the concussion protocol. If Garoppolo cannot start, Meyers must rely on veteran quarterback Brian Hoyer or rookie Aidan O'Connell in Sunday's contest. Meyers is a high-end WR2 regardless of who is behind center, but fantasy managers should temper expectations if Garoppolo cannot play.

Zay Flowers Sees 10 Targets

Sunday, September 24, 11:25 PM

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers may not have found the endzone yet this season but he now has caught 21 of his 25 targets through three games. The rookie saw another 10 targets against the Colts and hauled in eight of them for 48 yards while also getting one carry for just two yards. In PPR formats, Flowers has produced reliable fantasy stat lines since he tends to see a lot of close-range targets. The passing game still seems to be working out some kinks, so Flowers and company could improve as the season goes on. Week 4, however, will be a tougher challenge against the Browns defense.
